The Xbox Live Stats Widget application is now available on the official Android Market for free. It has now already been downloaded over 60,000 times!
We have communicated with Microsoft and now have access to the official Xbox Community Developer Program information feed, which makes the data a lot more up to date.
Keep track of what your friends are doing on Xbox Live with the Xbox Live Stats Widget!
Due to the great enthousiasm by users we had to ask Microsoft to increase our daily API access limit twice already, and it seems to be working more stable now. However, if the popularity of the widget keeps growing as fast as it does, similar problems may or may not pop up again.
We are also working on a few other Android experiments and applications to test out the GUI and other functionality, and are looking at possibilities to create tablet applications, for example for the upcoming Notion Ink Adam.
Everyone is familiar with the situation: you find yourself in a room full of people, listening to a presentation by a speaker. Sometimes, these presentations can be boring. Often when a presentation, the interestingness of the ‘slides’ is one of the key factors. If only those slides would be a bit less static!
PowerRail aims to make presentations more dynamic.
PowerRail is a Papervision 3d and XML powered presenting tool. The application delivers a flash 3d environment in which content ranging from text, images, video’s and even live streams can be displayed, grouped, and presented either in an automatic timed slideshow, or interactively depending on the user or presenter’s actions. This means PowerRail is multimodal, it can for example be used both as a rich internet application to present a set of assets online, or in full screen presentation mode during presentations for audiences.
Because of the versatility of the application the results are only limited to the user’s creativity.
